Effectiveness of Leksell gamma knife hypophysectomy on cancer-related intractable pain – a single-center experience.


Hypophysectomy is a method used in analgesia in patients with painful bone metastases. The pain relief after this procedure is not pathophysiologically fully understood. In only a few studies Leksell gamma knife (LGK) was used for radiosurgical hypophysectomy. In our study, we performed the LGK hypophysectomy in patients with intractable cancer-related pain due to bone metastases and evaluated the impact of this method on pain relief.
